In this video I explain everything you need to know about the GameStop ($GME) madness going on in the financial markets and world of investing and trading. I explain in plain English what shorting (short-selling) is, what a short squeeze is, why hedge funds use shorting strategies, the full story behind the rise of the GameStop share price, and more. If you want a simple explanation to everything you’ve seen in the news and social media lately regarding Robinhood, GameStop, AMC, Blackberry, r/wallstreetbets, Reddit, etc. this is the video for you. I hope it provides an informal insight into an often-opaque industry. Thanks for passing by and enjoy!
